Golden Globes: Rivieres Rule

Celebrities take elegant, low-key approach to glamour at awards show

Amid a sea of gorgeous black gowns, the real star of the show at January's Golden Globe Awards was that old standby, the diamond riviere necklace.

The Los Angeles Times raved: "The style has the potential to be the next diamond tennis bracelet – that is, a beautiful, timeless design that women can wear for day or evening."

Among the stars wearing riviere necklaces were Téa Leoni (shown here with her husband, actor David Duchovny), Christine Lahti, Julianne Moore, Lisa Kudrow and Jodie Foster.

Fashion critics theorized the riviere, also know as a straight line necklace, is just the antidote to over-the-top diamond creations that usually rule high profile award shows such as the Oscars.

Diamonds were all over the place at the Golden Globes, even in non-riviere styles. There were tons of stud earrings, such as those pictured here on Gillian Anderson, who stars with Duchovny on "The X Files." Though Anderson matched hers with a diamond and platinum "lace" necklace, others let earrings tell the whole understated story. In this minimalist category were Helen Hunt, Kirstie Alley, Faye Dunaway, Kristen Johnston, Angelina Jolie, Simbi Kahli, Jennifer Lopez, and Gloria Reuben, all of whom wore earrings without necklaces.
